That is some really great news

So they expect to release in 2021. Must mean they start from scratch which I think is a good idea having the development in hardware, graphics and AI in mind.

3 years is a long time. At least it gives me time saving up for building a new computer.

Half a year after the Bethesda rumor it changed to bitComposer Entertainment having the rights. There should also be a facebook post saying GSC never sold the rights. Only time will tell what is correct.

STALKER has for me been the most involving series of any game, in no small part due to the modders who have kept the dream alive.

So I hope that GSC continue to understand the importance of their community (that kept STALKER alive way beyond its end-date) and so ensure that the a-life is remains unparalleled and that the game is open to expansion.

I am very excited for what is to come, but the competition has been chasing you hard... but amazingly have still NOT caught up!

Whatever the outcome, I only hope that this does not turn into a pile of crap as Vault76 turned out to be.

If this is true, GSC should hire in all the top modders to work on this.

Also they should program this for the PC, not the consoles.

I am thrilled to see what storyline they want to go with.
If it is a sequel to Call of Pripyat, or it own story/timeline?

I am hoping for a huge-ass gameworld, since the real world Zone is quite big, with working A-life.

But Epic gives money upfront, plus guarantees a certain amount of sales (gives you extra money if the game does not sell well on their store). I doubt GSC is rolling in dough after not publishing any titles for so long.

I'm waiting too. I have nothing against Epic's shop but I already have 4 places (Origin, Uplay, Steam and GOG) where I have bought games, one more feels like one too many. Some games are sold on more than one platform and combined with waiting for a sale/patching/etc it gets easy to accidentally buy the same game twice.

Well, there was the unconfirmed leak that Stalker 2 would use the Unreal 4 Engine. Epic Games is the developer of the Unreal Engine. Epic Games owns the Epic Store. It only makes sense for a deal with GSC about the Game Engine would include a deal about the distribution through the Epic Store. Sounds like GSC wants a dependable Game Engine with a smooth transition to publishing and distribution.

If that rumour is true then it makes sense. GSC would also save a lot of time and money not having to create a new engine.

Besides, it was a stroke of luck for them to have hired Oles Shishkovtsov the last time. Without him, they would not have had their industry-leading deferred-shading rendering engine. I doubt they will be so lucky twice. But, even if they did, the difficulty of developing a modern engine has gone up significantly since then.

It may depend on the engine. For example, Bioware's Anthem is said to have suffered because the developers didn't understand the poorly documented Frostbite engine. Maybe Unreal is easier to work with than Frostbite, I don't know.

And how easy will it be to add A-Life to a third-party engine like Unreal? There's a risk that developers let the Stalker2 game design be guided by what the Unreal engine can do, rather than making a new engine that can do the things Stalker games need.

Agreed and seconded.

The A-life in the STALKER series was for me a key element in my enjoyment of the series.

Fingers crossed!

We are proud to have 39k of our fans here. Thanks: that means a lot to us.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2

From GSC Game World:

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is powered by Unreal Engine.

Frankly speaking, we wanted to hold this particular announcement for a while. But our colleagues at Epic accidentally made a New Year surprise for everyone, including us.

GSC Game World team constantly searches for the best technologies to work with, and UE was the most suitable choice for us.

It gives the opportunity to make the game you wait for with the atmosphere of tension and mystery — the flesh and blood of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. universe. Additionally, Unreal Engine harmonizes well with our goal to make modding more easy and accessible. User modifications help the world of the Zone to live on while we are busy with making a sequel, and we can't be more grateful for that.

Yes, we know what you are thinking about, but this announcement has nothing to do with platforms or digital stores. We will talk about this later.

Anything else? Ah, sure — a loaf of last year's bread. Both a stalker snack and a bit of slavic humour.

Happy New Year!

Interesting interview occured with gsc devs recently. One of them, forgot the name but I think it was the bold headed CoP one expressed how ecstatic and impressed he was with the game. I cant recap everything but basically the game is looking really good, runs very smoothly especially on xbox series x but will also come out for the pc. There will be no compromises on the xbox and developing for it is a seemless smooth experience as it pretty much is a pc of its own. Now the devs mentioned something about releasing more leaks but when I didnt catch. Might rewatch the interview again later. Here's a link for all who can understand Russian:

I hope they do improve the combat AI.

One of the things I miss from Clear Sky is that AI had positions near walls and props where they can do a cover animation and shoot from those.

It made fights more fun in a way instead of every AI just strafing and shooting towards me.

I do hope that they won't release it before it is ready.
Don't slash and cut, like they had to for the first game.

I am secretly hoping for a 2022 release.
I just bought 600 rounds of 7,62x54R for my SVD. That set me back nearly USD700$ ( (4000 Danish Kroner). And 650 rounds of 9mm for my Beretta 92FS. For USD217$ (1300 Danish Kroner). So my budget for upgrading my PC is nil. So I won't upgrade before 2022

Published by Mykyta Horodyvskyi

Retail editions of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl are already available for pre-order in Germany, Italy, France, and other countries. The list of stores will be updating all the time, so more and more stalkers will have the opportunity to grab habar from the Zone.
If there is still no possibility to pre-order a retail version of the game in your country — don’t worry! We are working on it.
You can find out whether pre-orders are open in your region in a special #pre-order channel of our Discord server. In the nearest future, we will also add all the links to our official website — https://www.stalker2.com

Stalker 2 has finally come to the US for retail pre-order.

However it's only for Xbox at the moment:

Amazon
https://www.amazon.com/S-T-L-K-R-Heart-Chernobyl-Xbox/dp/B09F1D1WXJ/ref=sr_1_1

Best Buy

Walmart
https://www.walmart.com/ip/S-T-A-L-K-E-R-2-Hearts-of-Chernobyl-Xbox-Series-X/545206751

^ ^ ^ ^ ^

Just a reminder you need 150 GB of space for the retail PC version:

Hello Strangers

I'm worried about this game a little bit. I look at STALKER as a PC Game.
I see STALKER 2 as a console game. Microsoft in some form of control
makes me panic, but I am Ancient.
Hopefully the younger will still enjoy it. The Trailer did look nice.
Good Luck!

Horizon Zero Dawn was originally made for PS4, I have it on PC and it's not as fenced in as console games often is compared to PC games because of the way the maps in HZD are loading. If GSC manages to make Stalker 2 work similarly or better there should be no problems.

Good to see you are still alive. We've all got our fingers crossed for Stalker 2 being good despite also being on Console.

Check out the General Forum section. A lot more activity there.

Nashathedog just did a review on that game in "Community Game Reviews" on page 1 that's in the General Forum section. You should check it out.

Still waiting for the Retail Ultimate version to become available in Denmark :\

Pre-ordered the Ultimate version on Steam.

Slowly upgrading the PC to meet recommended requirements.
Still missing a i7-9700k, and a better Graphics card.
Probably going for at RTX2080 Super, or RTX 2080 TI.

It seems I missed out on the Ultimate version, could only order the Limited Retail. First days after they announced it their site didn't show the links for it and then I kinda forgot about it again for a while. I'm not too bummed about it though, the Limited still has patches in it and the other stuff would just collect dust in the end anyway

Stealth mechanics are a good addition to the game, yet we already learned that some things won’t be there in Stalker 2. The devs confirmed there will be no squadmates or animal companions, as well as any vehicles or driving sequences available to the players.

Latest rumor from Facebook:

‼ YouTube blogger OLDboi UA claims to have received an exclusive insider - STALKER 2 will be postponed to the autumn of 2022‼️

According to him, the gameplay will be shown in the near future, after which we will be informed about the postponing of the game release. It seems that some will take this as good news, as a chance to get the game in better condition than Cyberpunk on its release.

It also says 8th of December 2022 on the official Stalker 2 website.
Wonder how people will react on their channel on Discord.
Edit:
Looks like people takes it pretty well on Discord and on the Stalker 2 website, at least the English language versions.
